Hi! This is my first test. I am using Audacity on a MacBook Pro, and I have a Rode USB mic filtered through an M-Audio Air 192/4 box. Please let me know how I can improve and thank you! https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_amshanahan.mp3

Hi, welcome to librivox :D

You're sounding great but have a couple of tech specs to fix.

The bit rate should be 128 kbps. When you export, change 'quality' to 128 kbps

The recording should use a constant bit rate rather. When you export change 'bit rate mode' to 'constant'

Audacity should remember thes settings for future recordings.

Once you've fixed these please upload the test again and post the link here :)
